For those who miss out on selection for the Glorney Cup or the European Junior Championships, the Gibraltar International Junior Festival in August is now open for entries.
The tournament, which takes place from the 15th to the 20th of August, has two sections – u16 and u12. Full details are available on the tournament’s website. For an idea of what to expect, last year’s u16 tournament was won jointly by a 2023 rated player and a 2369 FM (!), but there’s enough of a tail to make it still tough but worthwhile for anyone in the club.
Note that the tournament will not be ICU-rated unless a request is sent in in advance.
